Birdman and Cash Money Records in Another Lawsuit
Birdman and his Cash Money Records empire is facing another legal woe.
This time around, the label is being accused of illegally using music samples for two songs that were released under the Cash Money Records banner. The suit alleges that Llyod’s “You” samples “True”, a song by British rock group Spandeau Ballet. The second single in the case is Glasses Malone’s “Certified”.
Take a listen to “True” below:
‘You’ featured Lil’ Wayne and peaked at No.9 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2007. However, “Certified” was less of a hit for the music team.
And below is the Llyod’s version:
TMZ reports that the original artists have filed a lawsuit against Cash Money for $3.3 million in damages for the lack of payments.
Birdman skimming songwriters on payments seems to be a part of his repertoire as Lil’ Wayne sued his former right-hand man for the same thing. Yep, after a series of social media rants, Wayne is seeking $51 million from Mr. Respek.
The cash shouldn’t be too hard to cough up being that Birdman just signed a deal with Apple Inc. Oh and recall Birdman stating he sleeps on a million dollars…. press play below.
